New igraph data package- igraphwalshdata

After seeing Melanie Walsh’s sample social network datasets Github repository I was inspired to take the datasets and make an R package on it. Appropriately called “igraphwalshdata”.

Check it out here:

It looks great, thanks for sharing!

Some minor feedback:

  • The installation command in the README should be devtools::install_github
  • The datasets are made available in the workspace immediately after loading the package, even without using the data command. Is this usual? I’m not a big R user, but I haven’t seen this with other datasets.
  • It might be a good idea to get rid of attributes that contain no information (e.g. “Edge Labels” in some mjp datasets)

@szhorvat Thanks for telling me these feedbacks.

  1. Fixed the typo in the README
  2. I’m trying to follow the format for the igraphdata package (which I see you are a contributor to!).
  3. I’ll look into that further.
